collection script from Management Studio or use the sqlcmd –W parameter if you are capturing the data using sqlcmd. The –W ensures that trailing spaces from the result sets are removed. Writing Your Own Queries If you still want to go that extra mile with SQL Nexus, you can write your own T-SQL queries to fetch and aggregate the data available in the SQL Nexus tables. The following query returns an aggregation of the SUM of all the CPU/Duration/Reads/Writes that completed execution during the

attention to your physical core counts and the relative performance and scalability you get for each physical core. You are likely to be stuck with the processor(s) you choose for the lifetime of the server, which is probably several years, so choose wisely. Choosing wisely means getting the most performance and scalability with the lowest total physical core count in the server. Choosing poorly means getting less performance and scalability but paying the same or a higher total cost for your SQL

find a good plan in a reasonable amount of time, rather than the best plan. The optimizer’s goal is most commonly described as finding the most efficient plan. If the Optimizer tried to find the “best” plan every time, it might take longer to find the plan than it would to just execute a slower plan (some built-in heuristics actually ensure that it never takes longer to find a good plan than it does to just find a plan and execute it). As well as being cost based, the Optimizer also performs
